Description

This was the next model down from the N4418, being a four-track stereo recorder with three speeds (7½ , (3¾ & 1 ips), three motors, two heads and internal 5 watts R.M.S. per channel amplifiers. (The N4418’s power output was 12 watts per channel and it had three heads). Like the N4418, all audio controls were of the slide-type and transport functionality was via solenoid-controlled light-touch buttons.
The capstan motor was electronically governed to keep tape speed constant and tape tension comparators kept the winding torque constant. Other features included a 4-digit tape counter, straight-through amplifier, input mixing, twin illuminated VU meters for recording and playback and two built-in 6″ x 4″ speakers.
